New BMW M 1000 RR- 50 Years M Edition!

BMW M 1000 RR 50 Years M Edition

BMW has released a special anniversary edition of its road-going superbike, the M 1000 RR, to commemorate nearly a century of motorcycle production.

The colour – Sao Paulo Yellow – is the most striking and distinguishing element of the 50th-anniversary edition M 1000 RR.

Of course, you’ll have to like it if you want one because it’s the only colour option.

You may get the M 1000 RR in ordinary M Motorsport colours if you can’t bear the Sao Paulo Yellow and don’t care about the anniversary badging.

The 50 Years /M Package adds $4,500 to the M 1000 RR’s standard price of $32,495 US, bringing the total to $36,995 before the $645 destination cost.

BMW M Past Stories

If you’re unfamiliar with BMW history, BMW Motorsport GmbH was established in 1972 as the company’s official motorsport arm.

This new subsidiary’s principal goal was to focus on the automotive business, and 1973 3.0 CSL was the division’s debut race vehicle.

On the other hand, BMW was active in motorsport long before BMW Motorsport.

The firm set land speed records in the 1920s and 1930s and even won the Senior race on the Isle of Man in 1939.

However, Michael Dunlop would not win another race at the Isle of Man TT until 74 years later, in 2014, riding the S 1000 RR in the Superbike event.

Of course, BMW had off-road success in the Paris-Dakar rallies in the 1980s.

BMW commemorates this rich racing tradition with the 50 Years M Package M 1000 RR.

BMW Motorrad released M special equipment and M Performance parts for select existing motorbike models towards the end of 2018.

In September 2020, the M 1000 RR, the first BMW motorcycle to bear the M brand designation, made its world debut.

The letter M is associated with racing success worldwide and high-performance BMW vehicles aimed at clients who value performance, exclusivity, and individuality.

The BMW M 1000 RR meets all of these demands and maintains the BMW M racing history by serving as the basis bike for the BMW Motorrad World Superbike Team since 2021 and lots of other race teams globally.

Here’s a press release

BMW Motorrad introduces the M 1000 RR 50th M anniversary edition in Sao Paulo Yellow with historic 50 years BMW M badging to commemorate BMW M GmbH’s founding in 1972 as BMW Motorsport GmbH.

This stunning mix pays homage to the spirit of BMW Motorrad’s nearly 100-year history and BMW M’s 50-year history.

The M 1000 RR must be equipped with the optional 50 Years /M Package to receive the anniversary edition.

This package includes a lighter silver anodized aluminium swingarm, M GPS lap trigger unlock software, the M endurance chain, the M passenger seat and seat cover, and the heavy usage of M machined aluminium and M carbon parts.

The Light White / M Motorsport Competition Package is also available for the M 1000 RR non-anniversary form.

Motorsports & BMW Motorrad

However, racing success was not limited to four-wheeled BMW automobiles.

Motorsport has always been a source of innovation, especially in the early decades.

Ernst Jakob Henne, who established 76 world land speed records on supercharged BMW motorcycles between 1929 and 1937, and Georg “Schorsch” Meier, who won the 1939 Senior Tourist Trophy on the Isle of Man on his 500cc supercharged BMW, are both legendary figures from those early years.

Helmut Dähn and Hans Otto Butenuth won fifth place in the Isle of Man Production TT class 37 years later, in 1976.

They had set the fastest time on their BMW R 90 S but were placed fifth due to handicap restrictions, behind two 250cc and two 500cc motorcycles.

Fifth place was hailed as a victory given the fastest time despite this. Seventy-four years after “Schorsch” Meier won the Senior TT, Michael Dunlop won the 2014 Isle of Man TT Superbike race on his BMW S 1000 RR. The RR would win more races in the following years, leaving an indelible impact on the TT.

BMW M colours would also be seen in off-road situations, such as the early 1980s Paris-Dakar races, where BMW GS factory riders Hubert Auriol and Gaston Rahier triumphed.

BMW M GmbH & BMW Motorsport GmbH

BMW Motorsport GmbH was established in 1972 to bring together all BMW motorsport activities under one roof and consolidate the production of high-performance race vehicles and race engines.

In 1973, the BMW 3.0 CSL (CSL = Coupe Sport Light) made its debut as BMW Motorsport GmbH’s first race car. “A corporation is like a human being,” Robert A. Lutz, member of the Board of Management of BMW AG for Sales in 1972, said at the founding of BMW Motorsport GmbH.

It stays fit, eager, effective, and powerful if it participates in sports.”

In 1973, the BMW 3.0 CSL made its European Touring Car Championship début, wearing the three BMW Motorsport colours of blue, violet, and red on a snow-white background.

Blue – Dark Blue and Red are today’s revised Motorsport colours.

This renowned colour combination was first seen on BMW M streetcars in the 2nd half of the 1970s.
